Errichto's blog

By Errichto, 3 years ago, In English,

Hello Codeforces.

The CF Round #356 will happen on 8-th June (exact time). You will get five problems to solve in two hours. The round is rated.

I encourage you to read other problems if you don't like or can't solve something. The scoring distribution will be announced.

MikeMirzayanov and GlebsHP make the round possible. Also, thanks for Stonefeang, kostka, johnasselta, AlexFetisov and (more to be added?) for their amazing help. And I want to thank my girlfriend because there would be no Limak without her.

It's my first standard round. Still, you should get nice interesting problems. You will meet Limak, who is usually a little polar bear. Here he is, preparing one of problems.

I wish you great fun and no frustrating bugs.

EDIT — It's recommended for both divisions to read the Interactive Problems Guide before the round.

EDIT2, SCORING

div2: 500-1000-1750-2250-2750
div1: 750-1250-1500-2000-2500

EDIT3

The editorial with codes is ready.

WINNERS, congratulations!

  1. Petr
  2. ainta
  3. halyavin
  4. jcvb
  5. I_wanna_be_a_pupil

and Division 2:

  1. Y_UME
  2. kaq
  3. BehtarinFake
  4. msaska9
  5. Jeannette

Thank you all for participation and see you next time. And regards from Limak, a bear.

    I am taking part in the College Entrance Examination in china.

    But there is a conflict between the Examination and this contest.

    But nothing is more important than become a purple boy.

    So I give up the College Entrance Examination.

          I apologize to all the English-speaking, below I will explain for Russian — that such GAOKAO

          Поясню для тех, кто не в теме, китайский ГАОКАО (高考) — это аналог российского ЕГЭ, только намного круче и ответственнее. И он проходит единым экзаменом в один день по всей программе, а не как в России разбит на предметы. Китайские школьники сдают этот экзамен на стадионах, гигантских актовых залах, часто не в свое городе, чтобы не было возможности "договориться". По результатам набранных экзаменов идет распределение во вузам, техникумам, училищам. Вроде тоже самое, что и у нас в России, НО — всего 5-7% выпускников китайских школ имеют возможность продолжить учебу в учебных заведениях. Остальные — работать на фабрики, поля и улицы! Поэтому истерика при сдаче просто сумасшедшая. При этом корочки ВУЗа дают высокий шанс на успешное будущее. На фото — проводы выпускников на экзамен

          Вот поэтому и я понимаю, почему КРУПНОПИШУЩИЙ нервничает ))

    Hey, hacking is hard work! It's much harder to get 500 or 1000pts by hacking than solving a problem. Besides, once you get the hang of it it's super fun. Also, it's good to learn to code without relying on strong outside tests if you're ever gonna do coding outside of competitions.

    What I coded up and finished a bit after the end was this:

    First, generate first few terms of sequence, and oeis the rest: http://oeis.org/A055402

    Then hardcode those values, and for a given m pick the best value you can. Call this best value v. Decompose v into its cubes, then(from highest to lowest) try incrementing each cube(n^3 becomes (n+1)^3) while making sure the sum doesn't exceed the given m. Then output this sum. I didn't get to submit, so I'm not sure if this is completely correct

Problem Div2 C was really easy for hacks, because it had week pretests! For example, I hacked two people using "94" as a hack because they didn't check for 47. Another hack was "49", so no perfect squares.

    I couldn't think of a legit solution either...

    I ended up using a really sketchy solution in which I check the 500000 numbers below m and take the optimal value (can't prove it's correct, let's see if I AC).

I completely forgot to input m as a long long for problem D.

I managed to find number of cubes in D and minimal volume. Was it the right way or this information is useless?

    If I remember correctly, you should twice use BCD in city 1. If you get distance 0 then you win immediately. Otherwise, for sure Limak moved between cities 2 and 3 — guess one of them.

Now-a-days contests have become extremely rare. And then to provide a contests like today is so disappointing...To do so much upsolving preparing for contests..for what? An interactive problem that almost 70% of the candidates can solve? Noooo...This is just not done..

      Absolutely....I wasted too much time on C and got stuck on 1200 position...if i would have solved it faster...my position would have been under 500 as I had a lot time for C :(

        You could also use hacks on Div2 C even if you had lost some time, there were many participants with wrong code because the pretests were weak. After submitting my first 3 problems I ended up being somewhere near place 250, but with 3 hacks I got to the place 47 and thus I am Div1 now :)

    If you would've solved problem D, you wouldn't be complaining. Keep upsolving, and you will keep do better and better :)

Thank you very much, Errichto! I loved the problems!

I came up with the efficient approach for C right after the contest ended and it took me some 10-15 minutes more to code it, but I enjoyed the contest nevertheless :D

Thank you for participation and for kind words. Also thanks for bad words (as long as it's something constructive/reasonable). Btw. div2 participants can now check again a picture from the blog. Do you know why is there one card hidden?

    Congratz for the contest, it was really good in my opinion (maybe difficulty raise was a little too high between div2.C and div2.D, but still I really enjoyed this contest).

My view of the points system this round 500 — 750 — 1250 — 2500 — 3500

Honestly, I miss the dynamic scoring.
